Supreme Court Shut As Federal Judiciary Workers Begin Strike

Judiciary workers, under the aegis of the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN), have kicked off their indefinite strike today, with the closure of Federal High Courts in different states across the nation, News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.

The union said the purpose of the strike is to draw attention to the financial autonomy of Nigeria’s Judiciary.

According to NAN, staff members, lawyers, and others were locked out and prevented from entering court premises.

Members of the union said they were on strike to press home their demand for the financial autonomy of the judiciary. JUSUN President, Mr Marwan Adamu, said all courts and other departments would be shut until and unless the government does the needful.

Chairman of JUSUN in Kano, Mr Mukhtar Rabiu-Lawan, was quoted to have said: “There is no going back. We have begun the strike and all courts within the state have been shut.”
